An increase in the production and sales volume of petroleum products, including via premium sales channels, as well as growth in oil and petroleum product prices on the domestic market led to a 12.4% increase in sales in the reporting year.

The 1.7% increase in adjusted EBITDA was held back by the negative influence of the temporary lag in export duties (delayed effect of duties). The negative effect of exchange rate differences as a result of the revaluation of loans and borrowings led to a 31.4% decrease in profit attributable to shareholders of OJSC Gazprom Neft in the reporting year.

Net debt expanded by 133.2% from 185.9 bn to 433.6 bn RUB.
